Hernia Mesh Attorneys

Oxygen inhalation equipment in hospital

Many thousands of hernia mesh lawsuits have been filed against the manufacturers of these medical devices by people who claim that the mesh product used in their surgery was defective and caused serious injuries and health complications. Most hernias today are repaired with surgical mesh – but not all surgeries are successful. Studies and post-market reports indicate that the premature failure rate of hernia mesh can lead to severe side effects such as hernia recurrence and the need for follow-up surgeries to address the damage caused by the defective mesh implant.

Douglas & London is investigating all cases involving hernia mesh products in which a mesh explant and/or a mesh revision surgery has taken place or has been recommended but contraindicated due to life-threatening medical conditions.

If you or someone you know had a hernia mesh removal or revision surgery – or has scheduled a hernia mesh removal or revision surgery with a doctor – contact us today! You may be entitled to compensation for unpaid medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and loss of quality of life because of complications related to these dangerous hernia repair devices.

Hernia Mesh Lawsuit

Many medical device manufacturers are facing lawsuits over their hernia mesh products, which are designed to repair hernias in cases where the stomach muscles cannot withstand the manual stitching necessary for hernia-repair surgery. The mesh is placed between the intestines and the stomach lining in order to keep the intestines in their original position.

Hernia Mesh Complications

Numerous injuries can occur following a hernia repair surgery in which a defective mesh was implanted. Some of the most prevalent complications from surgical mesh include:

  • Chronic pain
  • Infection
  • Bowel obstruction
  • Hernia recurrence
  • Adhesion
  • Mesh shrinkage and migration
  • Organ perforation

When manufacturers use hernia mesh materials that contract, migrate, harden, and fail, the consequences are often catastrophic for the patient, requiring additional medical care and surgery.

If you were injured by a defective medical device, our attorneys will identify liable parties and fight for the full compensation to which you are entitled.

Can You Pursue a Hernia Mesh Class Action Lawsuit?

As a potential plaintiff, you probably have questions about current hernia mesh litigation and how much compensation you can expect. The best way to get answers is by speaking with a knowledgeable hernia mesh lawyer at Douglas & London. Our attorneys have procured more than $4 billion in verdicts and settlements for our personal injury clients, and specialize in mass tort cases involving defective medical devices. 

At present, hernia mesh lawsuits are being filed on an individual basis, rather than a class action. However, several mass torts have been established to expedite pretrial processes and encourage settlement negotiations. New legal complaints against Davol/Bard, Ethicon, and Atrium may be consolidated into existing multidistrict litigations (MDL), where cases are overseen by a single district judge.

Thousands of cases have settled privately, but the amounts of these hernia mesh lawsuit settlements have been kept confidential. Though it’s impossible to predict your exact monetary award, damages for hernia mesh failure injuries may include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost income
  • Loss of future earnings
  • Loss of quality of life
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish
